I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.
Unfortunately the news following our third beta was not good. The number has dropped to 13. This means that at some point since our last blood draw the embryo development arrested and subsequently the hCG hormone in my system began to decline - the pregnancy became non-viable. I had been mentally preparing myself for this seeing as our numbers were low and slow but nonetheless, this is absolutely disappointing news.
I will stop meds for now and we will hopefully have a new plan in place soon for another try.
Please keep my IPs in your thoughts. Despite remaining positive, I know this news is difficult for them.
